Butler on addiction AND standards

From Greg Williams (920614 - 2)

Samuel Butler (the Erewhon guy, not the poet) long ago had a comment
related to both the proposed thread on addiction and the one on standards:

    If the hangover came first, alcoholism would be a virtue.

An aside to Bill Powers: are you addicted to revisions? Let me know when
you are getting tired of revising, and THEN I'll have a go at the paper. In
the meantime, I have made some literature-survey progress.

Best wishes (assuming that meets standards and isn't too addictive),
